Great Day


A member of our stamping group lives in Canada and hasn't been able to make it to our Group Gathering, but she is so sweet and sends some die cuts and stampoffs. Thanks so much, Annie!

This card was made with one of those die cuts - the coneflower. I used Copic markers to color it and foam squares under the flowers. The Swiss Dots background came from my "Card Parts" box. The sentiment is mounted on foam squares, also, and is from a Hero Arts set.

Speaking of "card parts" - I have spent a couple days going through ALL of my card parts. I threw away TONS of them - cardstock scraps that shouldn't have been in there, images I knew I would never use, etc.  Even images that were already colored, that I knew I wouldn't use. I still have more work to do - to try to figure out how to organize what's left. But, it feels good to have gotten that much done so far.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Love these flowers - have to do same with my craft room - in process of reorganizing in hopes of making more room & give it a less cluttered look.

The coneflowers are so pretty the way you colored the die cut! It's a great card.

I had recently thrown away some card parts and pieces of card stock that I thought "could be used".
